Data were collected through a questionnaire survey, and a total of 424 questionnaires were used for final analysis: 213 questionnaires from the consumers who used department store, plus 211 questionnaires from those who used Dongdaemun Fashion Town. The result of this research showed that there was significant difference in all of service fairness (procedure and outcome), customer’s participation behavior (emotional participation, information participation and physical participation), relationship quality (satisfaction and trust) and relationship performance (repurchase intention, and positive word-of-mouth) perceived by consumer, according to the type of clothing store (clothing stores in department store versus Dongdaemun Fashion Town).
